Interesting Fact: The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Today St Andrew’s Methodist Church now holds the International Mother’s Day Shrine.[6] Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers, because she believed that they were “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”.

  1. When I was a kid, if you wanted to see a Canada goose in New Jersey, you had to go to the zoo or to the annual Sportsman’s Show. Now they’re all over the place; and if you want to walk up to the edge of a pond, you’d better wear galoshes.

    • That is so true they are everywhere, thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Happy Blogging! 🙂
